The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Day 2

The second day of festivities in Madrid began with presentations and an  OOAK artist cocktail by Sebastian Atelier.  Rogier took some great photos of these events!

Carlyle Nuera gave a presentation from Mattel.  No photos were allowed at this event after the introduction.  It looks like he was signing his fabulous sketches that people received in their registration bags before the presentation .

Ibrahim Ismail also gave a presentation on Bollywood cinema but sadly, I do not have any images of that.  I’m sure it was fabulous.

Conventioneers were given option to attended the OOAK artist cocktail party given by Sebastian Atelier.  There were some beautiful OOAK creations to look through and for a lucky few, purchase.

The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Fashion Show

I may only speak for myself but I feel many would agree that the fashion show is always a fun part of any doll convention…or rather Barbie convention.  I am always amazed at the skill of collectors and their ability to produce a doll design in real people scale.  The attention to detail that many of these collectors go to is really intense.    Here are some quick photos from this years Madrid convention.

And of course, each show has to have it’s own set of paparazzi…

If you wanted to, you could also take a workshop at IDC today.  Rogier did one with his incredible miniatures.  If you ever have the chance to take one of his workshops…do it!  This is what the lucky participants got to make today.

The Convention does not officially begin until Saturday morning but a few collectors were able to enjoy a special dinner with the co-creators of Magia2000 and the hosts of the Italian Doll Convention,  Mario and Gianni.  Rogier has supplied some stellar photos and pieces of info from that dinner.

There was a lovely collection of OOAK Magia 2000 dolls done especially for the IDC and they were unveiled at the dinner.  Mario and Gianni also debuted their new fragrance!©2016 Dutch Barbie World

THE 2014 INTEGRITY TOYS CONVENTION: GLOSS

HYATT REGENCY

ORLANDO FLORIDA

OCTOBER 30 – NOVEMBER 1, 2014

The Theme is “Gloss” and in I.T.’s own words  “This year, we take you to the world of glam, the upper echelon of fashion and fame!”  Oh what does it mean?!  I don’t know but whatever it is…it is sure to be good.  I have been to the last three of I.T.’s annual conventions and they have never disappointed.  I know there is always a first time for everything but frankly, I go to these conventions for the people and not the stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, stuff is nice but the people really are the biggest part of convention.  You get to hang out with people who like to collect what you collect and are willing to talk from morning to night about it.  It is one big fashion doll love fest. 

Admission costs $475.00 ( $450 if you register early, info on the website ).  There are special rates for the hotel as well.  Here are some of the perks awaiting convention goers:

-A welcome bag with a very special giveaway right when conventioneers arrive!

-Two full sit down dinners and a luncheon with highly sought-after swag given out at each event!

-Free access to the new "Hall of Gloss" Friday night event, where guests will spend Halloween night trick-or-treating with I.T. staff (and receive some special giveaway treats)!

-The opportunity to participate in the "Hall of Gloss" Fashion Bazaar, where for the first time in IT Convention history, they are creating a salesroom for collectors to sell and swap their own goodies!

-Access to the Integrity Toys Collection display, where you get to see all of those cool dolls in person!

-Access to the IT Direct Souvenir shop, where you can scoop up all of those special and limited edition Integrity Toys convention exclusive collectibles and other great deals, just for convention attendees!

And more….Halloween costume contest, workshops, exclusive convention collection, Color Infusion Style lab, raffles and design competitions.  Also, for WClub Members only, a WClub luncheon featuring the return of the Nu.Face collection.

If you are interested in finding out more about , You will find all the information about the convention and how to register here  I.T. Convention info

If you want to go to this convention, keep in mind that the sooner you sign up, the better your registration number will be.  What does this mean?  Well, if they do what they did last year ( and I hope they do), your registration number determines the order you get to go into the sales room to purchase all the convention collection goodies.
